Theatre Night, 8 – 10pm
We’re proud to announce the five plays which will be re-staged for our Theatre Night on Friday July 31st, in conjunction with Goblin Baby Theatre Company. Powerful and poignant, these plays explore victimhood, surviving, and recovering. They previously played to sold-out performances at the Unheard Festival in February at The Bread and Roses Theatre, a new writing festival exploring themes around sexual assault and sexual abuse. Tessa Hart, Artistic Director of Goblin Baby, produced the Unheard Festival, and is collaborating with us on Theatre Night. Many of the original cast will be returning for Clear Lines.
Tickets are available on Eventbrite – book early to avoid disappointment as space at the venue is very limited.
The five plays
‘This is How It Happens’
by Tanaka Mhishi
A survivor describes his first year after being raped. Lyrical, beautiful but also honest, and ultimately, more about survival than abuse.
by Samantha Coughlan
Breathless, partly based on Sam’s own experience, explores how a naive, trusting teenager becomes embroiled in a destructive relationship.
Extracts from ‘Doe’
by Rebecca Robinson
A group of women share their unique experiences of the same abuse. Are they victims? Or can they find their own strength after recovery from the trauma and suffering?
by Winnie M Li
At a job interview, on a first date, and at a dinner party, Tess wonders if she can really pretend that everything’s back to normal.
by Allie Costa
In this haunting, poetic duologue, two women emerge from a violent attack.
